Perfect, lets just make it a pajama party while we're at it. I know you have a NY Yankees one-zee in your closet.

I am so going to do this. Probably the best DIY I've seen yet.

I guess I have a project for next weekend.

Did you prep and paint the air bag as well?

did this today, well half way there atleast, I only had scratches and the melted look on the smooth part of the dash and center console, i was amazed how smooth it came out by just using the sponge and stripper... but got a questions, on the rest of the dash the textured part, do I need to do anything to that when I paint it, or should that rust-oleum paint stick just fine?

As long as you stick to thin, even layers of paint the texture will stay the same.
